If Joy Behar's rant about Sharron Angle was intended to hurt the Republican Senate candidate, the point was lost on Angle.
In fact, Angle was so pleased with the free press, her campaign sent Behar a bouquet of flowers.
The note read:
Raised $150,000 online yesterday -- thanks for your help.
Sincerely, Sharron Angle"
Behar let loose on Angle earlier this week during an episode of "The View," repeatedly calling Angle an expletive and saying she is "going to hell."
Behar was responding to an Angle campaign commercial about immigration, which juxtaposes images of menacing-looking Hispanic men with images of white smiling school children.
Rachel Maddow called the ad "the most overtly racist" ad of the season. Behar compared it to a "Hitler youth commercial."
Angle shot back with roses and lilies.
